TRAVELING FOR NUMISMATIC RESEARCH.

Dick Johnson writes: "To answer Dan Goslingís dilemma: If
you plan extensive time researching in libraries and archives
across America, get a motor home! It is ideal for parking in
the libraryís parking lot and you can live right on location for
as long as necessary. Get a used one, about five years old.
Use it as long as necessary and then sell it. Often, if you made
a good buy originally, you can virtually recoup your entire
investment, so your housing and living cost is quite small.
However, eight miles to the gallon of gas is not unusual
getting there.

The American Antiquarian Society in Worcester Massachusetts
is the only such institution I know that has coop housing -- right
across the street -- for visiting scholars and researchers, the
Goddard-Daniels House. Be sure to contact in advance, itís not
a hotel!, and it is usually full in academic vacation periods. (Those
darn history professors tend to hog the best rooms!)
